Re: Forensics C

Does anyone know anything about a burn test for polymers? The results given to us were whether or not it burns after being removed from the flame, and I was under the impression that the burn test was about the "copper wire" test.

Re: Designs

How do you connect the tower shaft to the base when using a four leg base, equally spaced around the tower like in this video . Would one just attach the tower shaft to the horizontal cross brace at the top of the base? In addition, I had a design that that looked like this one except we braced ours...

Re: Sumo Bots C

Where does on go about learning all this electronic circuit stuff to build this? I come from a team that has a strong aversion to all building events, and none of us really know how to begin this event.

Re: Efficiencies

What is a good way to reduce tower mass? My tower, admittedly heavy on the glue and using all 3/16 x 3/16 Height x Weight came in at 47.6g. My design is akin to this one , but my cross bracing is slightly different, with Z-bracing up the tower and X-bracing on the base. It held 12.4 KG, which gives ...

Re: 2011 Events.

I read a post about a tentative list of 2011 Div C events. Can anyone provide a link/google search term for that? Also, does anyone know what events, if any, are staying the same for sure (or simply a different, known topic, like Dynamic Planet --> Rivers and Lakes)? Thank you for any help.

Re: Elevated Bridge B/C

Is it better to Z brace the bridge or to cross brace it? I'm currently debating this and if it is cross bracing, how would you go about doing it?
